This Engine is a 2009 Pierce Velocity Custom 2000/500 Lo-Pro FDNY-Style Pumper that will be part of a large order to the LFD. This Engine is also a first for not only MOC Pages, but also Pierce and the entire firefighting community. The LFD is currently going to test the newly designed rig in it's future environment to see if it fully meets the needs and standards of the city. During this time, it will run as Engine 1 and will be fully-equipped, temporarily numbered, and will operate out of Fire Headquarters.
This rig was a custom prototype built by me and fully designed by me, although the rear of the rig is basically the same as Engine 3. It was modeled after Syosset, NY Fire Department's twin Engine's 1, 3, 4, 5, and 7, the FDNY's Engines, with a Pierce Velocity cab. Inspiration for this rig goes to Paul B. for the cab and parts of the body, Thomas D. for the cab, pump panel, and parts of the body, and Matt J. for the LED's. Thanks a bunch guys!!!
